Bike Bug vs. Solex, Friction Drive Races, RIP Mike Sneider

---------------- LaZer ------------* /

1. I have yet to get my Bike Bug running, so I'm curious on performance and reliability versus a solex. From the YouTube videos I've found it seems like the Bike Big is extremely louder.

2. I think it would be neat to have races for friction drive mopeds only. These bikes have been overlooked for far too long. The kids in Europe are doing it.

3. Mike Sneider has a great site at www.bikebug.net. He is the BrianSolex of the auqabug world. Problem is, he's a ghost. Only uses direct mail for parts ordering, emails come back delivery failure, and no one ever answers the phone. Is this guy still around? I really need a new drive wheel or instructions on how to make one outbof an inline skate wheel. (edited)

I just drilled out a skateboard wheel and pressed the center metal part of the original wheel into it. Fun little motor
